Special Equipment Needed

How to Section Citrus Fruit

Use sharp paring knife to cut 1/2-inch-thick slice off both the top and bottom ends of each piece of fruit. Cut peel and white pith away from fruit, using a downward cutting motion following the shape of the fruit. Place the peeled fruit piece on its side, then cut down along the membrane on both sides of each section to remove the fruit.


This flavorful citrus salsa also goes well with cooked fish and shellfish.
